Where to propose?

Hi all,

I'm off to Malta next week and planning to propose to my girlfriend whilst we're there. Can anyone recommend any nice little romantic places to do this? We'll be travelling about a bit whilst we're there but will be based at Hotel Juliani..

Thanks! :)

"Where to propose?"

Down on one knee is the norm lol, a romantic place to do this would be overlooking the sea at peacefull Dingli Cliffs, or at San Anton Gardens in Attard,or at the Cittadella in Rabat Ghawdex, or better still the fabulous Lunzjata Valley in Kercem Ghawdex, I proposed to Mrs Siggiewi4 on the halfpenny bridge in Dublin and she was that befuddled with Guinness and powers gold whiskey she said yes and we have never looked back, good luck and all the best.

As my Avatar suggests I would choose Mdina , the Silent city and there are two places I would choose , the rooftop restaurant at the Xara Palace hotel or the Fontanella Tea Garden

A quiet walk in moonlight medieval narrow streets , followed by a fine meal with Maltese wine and a magnificent night view should set the mood !

Good Luck

If you want a great view , watching the sun set into the sea , take your loved one to Dingli cliffs and take a seat behind the Cliff Chapel with the viewing gallery

there is a photo of the view but I will try to find a better one .

But if you do go to Dingli cliffs best to go in daylight as in the late evenings as it's going dark, one could find lots of young Maltese couples becoming very special chums in cars, living on the fruits of love is one thing but I wish they didn't keep leaving the skins behind if you get my drift.

Siggiewi

I agree with you , but this is not the place to get the message to the intended culprits :-)

Also , is that a Vespa or a Lambretta ? in your Avatar ...I used to have a 250 Vespa some 40 years ago and if You are free to do what you want , you can let everyone else too :-)

The cars are usually parked further than the church closer to the Bobbyland bar , which serves hot cappucinos on a cold winter night and can be romantic if you are in the mood :-)

I've had a look at the travel info but am unsure how late buses run - if we're off having a meal somewhere, will getting back to the hotel be easy enough?

Buses do not run later than 9:30 or 10:00.
